I happened to look at the left front tire yesterday and noticed the nut that holds the valve stem on is about 1/3 missing. The other tires looked fine and it has not lost any air but I did order a set of valve stem replacement parts. I know they were OK when I put the snow tires on last fall, so my guess is water got in there and the cold weather must have froze it and broke the nut.

Worth taking a look on occasion. :think:

I just checked mine the other day since I'm putting on new tires....all mine are cracked... glad I'm replacing them all :)
